Fucking awesome statement

Yes, I don't think it could have been much clearer.

Couldn't be clearer.
Very good news for women in Texas.

Brilliant news

Won’t it come down to the Supreme Court to decide though? In which case, it’s not really good news, just political posturing?

The Supreme Court is unlikely to have the power to overturn the US Constitution, surely? They would have to find against Texas on precisely those grounds.

My understanding is that Texas was able to sneak this through the Supreme Court quickly in a rather underhand way using a procedure called a 'shadow docket' . I don't exactly understand the ins and outs but hopefully the lawsuit from the AG will force them to deal with it properly and at least one of the 'conservatives' will realise they need to conserve women's rights under the constitution.

I read a piece in the NY times, but there seem to be some others which may not be paywalled if you search for
"On Politics: How the Supreme Court quietly undercut Roe v. Wade"

Shocking law. I hadn’t realised just how nasty a law Texas had brought in. Covid spying on your neighbours was clearly a practice run. I’m glad they have brought this lawsuit and hope it is enacted quickly.
